Magic

July 12, 2012

As the musical director , it has been my privilege to watch RENT come together, without all the stress of directing.

I love working with Tammy Ross. She is creative, generous, and she works with a vision. I am overwhelmed when I come to rehearsal and I see that vision unfolding. I have been trying to articulate the magic of rehearsals as I talk to friends and encourage them to come to see the show–(remember that we open in just one week!) But I can’t describe it. Aaron Ford’s choreography is clean and storied. The set is open and colorful–many thanks to our set painter Ryan Fallis and the set builders–including Joe Dutson.  Everyone who works at Midvale Main Street Theatre brings their heart to the  work. And you can feel it. But that heart starts with Tammy.

It is my privilege to work with her and to see her vision come to life. I took some rehearsal shots this week. the y are not in costume, but I’m hoping that the pictures will convey the magic better than my words.

Tickets are only $15. Live band. Amazing actors. Beautiful story.

A Jump Into The Future!

June 23, 2012

Midvale Main Street Theatre is constantly growing and pushing the bounds of what they’ve done before and redefining their own future.

At the beginning of the year, we opened with an amazing production of To Kill A Mockingbird that celebrated the anniversary of this profound story about community and integrity.

We followed that up with the community theatre PREMIERE of Next to Normal-– a story about family, loss, and acceptance.

The cast of On Golden Pond made audiences laugh and cry as they watched a timeless love story.

And now, we bring you RENT–Jonathan Larsen’s musical ode to living life well, even if you can’t pay your rent.

What do we think about the year so far? I think this picture of Angel from the cast of RENT articulates it best:

From L to R: Aleksndr Arteaga as Collins, Frank Castro as Angel, Daniel Silva as Roger, and Mike Howell as Mark rehearsing RENT. Check out the red heels!

 

RENT opens July 19th and plays Th, Fr, Sat thru August 4th.

Showtime is 7pm with a 2pm matinee every Saturday.

Tickets are only $15.

Get yours today by calling the box office 801-566-0596.
